Troubadour Magma is an amber colored beer with the bitterness of an American IPA but balanced with the fruitiness of a Belgian Triple. Enjoy the explosion of fruity aromas from the dry-hopping. -- A Triple IPA wich Czech bittering hops and Simcoe for Dry-hopping. Made by De Proef for Drie Musketeers, Ursel.

Enjoyed on tap at Cafe Hollander in Wauwatosa, WI after a good day recording and watching the movie Beyond the Black Rainbow. Appearance is a moderate tanned gold with an abundant, billowy white head. Aroma of spices, more of a caramel malt, with a small hop presence in my opinion, didn’t get too much citrus. Taste was interesting, I haven’t had many Belgian IPAs, and didn’t think it was advertently hoppy, but it was happier than most Belgian ales for sure. Definite herbal/spice presence, more like a hoppy tea or something of that nature. I did enjoy it, but probably won’t have this again.

The head is ok, the body brown and cloudy. It smells hoppy-flowery, creamy. The taste is creamy, hoppy, hoppy-flowery, a bit alcoholic-malty. Overall nice. 11/11/11/11/12/11

dank, cork taste with hoppy finish. Very good. Superior drinkability. Reminds me of a Fantomé Noel with hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 5/3/2013 printed on the cork. Pours extremely cloudy reddish orange color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, orange, grapefruit, citrus rind, pineapple, herbal, floral, grass, molasses, honey, bread, toast, light pine, and light earthy spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, complexity; the bottle age is definitely apparent being that this is a Belgian IPA. Taste of caramel, grapefruit, orange zest, grass, herbal, floral, toast, biscuit, honey, pine, earth, and light herbal spiciness. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, citrus zest, grass, herbal, floral, toast, biscuit, honey, earth, and light pine on the finish for a good bit. Excellent flavor balance and complexity; great hop/malt flavor balance; zero cloying flavors present on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA! Great hop/malt balance and nice complexity; extremely smooth to sip on for a 9% beer. A very enjoyable offering as I expected.

Pours cloudy dark brown, lots of sediment, orangish head... Aroma is way diffrent, strong pineappleish aroma.. Taste is very odd.. Like nothing i have had... Some creamy fruity wtf taste.. Not really hops i can taste i honestly had a real hard time choking it down until then last few drinks, and by then i actually was starting to like it... Weird beer in my opinion.. But i like the alc content :)

(From notes 2 Nov, 2012) Bottle. Large fluffy off-white head with a uniform structure. Clear golden beer. Aroma is fruity hops, like an American IPA. Some orange and honey. Overall, the aroma is great. Flavor is... malty and hoppy. The beer feels a bit foamy on the palate. Finish is a slightly alcoholic bitterness (unpleasant).

The aroma is the best thing about Troubadour Magma, but even with the alcoholic bitterness, it’s still a very nice IIPA.
